Dean's Electronics is a series of books designed for amateur electricians, in Fallout: New Vegas.
A pre-War series of books designed for amateur electricians, Dean's Electronics has been written using shocking breakthroughs in learning methods to effectively teach about the secrets of electronics.
Reading this book permanently increases the player's Repair skill by 3 points (4 with the Comprehension perk).
With the add-on Old World Blues, this skill book can be crafted by the player.
- Note: the recipe is consumed as part of the crafting process - meaning only one book can be crafted.
Other than being crafted, the skill book can be found in the following locations.
|Closest map marker||Location description|
|Abandoned Brotherhood of Steel bunker ||On the metal sill, opposite the reloading bench, in the area with the office. Though the location exists without the add-on, it is sealed by a keyless lock. Note: If the game is unpatched (installed straight from disk without being patched), the door will be unlocked and you will be able to enter and get the book.|
|Nellis Air Force Base||Inside Loyal's house, on the long counter next to the ruined terminal (must be stolen).|
|Hopeville Missile Silo Bunker ||When walking into the room with the first missile, the book is located to the left in some rubble.(Left of the stairs)|
|Puesta del Sol switching station ||Puesta del Sol Switching Station in the south center of the map on the upper level next to the terminal that shuts off power to the protected speakers. It is very difficult, but possible, to reach without Christine (her perk delays the speakers) and disarm the trip wire before your collar detonates.|
|Sloan||In the Worker Barracks, on the top shelf to your left as you enter (must be stolen). A Duck and Cover! can be found in the same building.|
|Southern Nevada Wind Farm||In the shack, on the table with the clipboard and scrap metal.|
